A Sanctified Attitude Toward Money

A Sanctified Attitude Toward Money

Matthew 6:19-24

Christ taught more about money than about heaven and hell combined.
Nothing is a more accurate indicator of a person’s spiritual condition than their attitude toward money..

  1.  You need to save the right treasure – Vs. 19 –
    The location of your treasure will determine its long term value.  Does your heart reflect kingdom priorities?
    .   Earthly – negative    1 Timothy 6:7, Luke 12:13-21, Proverbs 23:4-5, James 5:1-3
          Moth, rust, steal
    .   Heavenly – Positive
    .       Reward:  Persecution (5:44), love your enemy (5:46), prayer (6:4), fasting (6:16)
  2. Sustain the right vision – Vs. 22
  3. Serve the right master – Vs. 24
    Either God is served with a single devotion or He is not served at all.

Where riches hold the dominion of the heart God has lost His authority.   John Calvin
